Harvest is timed to a schedule determined by peak ripeness to create a wine of elegance, richness and structure. Grapes are pressed into fermentation vats for a fortnight or more of warmer temperature vinification on skins, aimed at extracting maximum fruit character and optimal tannins. Upon completion, batches are run off skins into a selection of French and Hungarian oak barrels for a course of malolactic and a year's maturation. Components are assembled into the final wine and treated to a further eighteen months bottle age before release.
Intense ruby red. Fresh and fruity nose of cherries and violet, and sweet spices, liquorice and anisette, cinnamo and cloves. An elegantly drying palate of black cherry, mulberries and spice, exquisitely balanced between sweetness of fruit and savouryness of style, all held in place by genteel background oak and smooth supporting tannins.
